obama. you have guys that have worked for supreme court justices that say even talking about this is unconstitution unconstitutional. no, it's not. scalia said you have a right to protect your family and have a handgun in your house. the other things, that's subject to government regulation. they overreached. the mothre they overreached, i warned them, i have been a member all my life -- >> that's nice. >> i will do it again. >> willie, what's my biggest fault. >> you love a little too much. >> that is it. >> i love a little too much. i shared some of that love last week. anyw anyway, it is a still not too late. they can come to the table and be part of a comprehensive package. i'm sure joe biden will accept them and joe manchin will accept them and conservatives will accept them to come to the table. i'm sure their membership wants them to do it, not the survivalists or gun manufacturers who have made millions of dollars off the death of 6 and 7 year-olds, the truth. it's not too late. if they keep their feet in cement, they're going to be run over, not by joe biden, but the
. and david cameron has been talking to president obama about probably sharing their confusion about the situation on the ground, and that very remote part of algeria. leon pan etta has come out, saying he and the rest of the defense department is working around the clock to bring the situation to a happy ending. >> and matthew, another question, and i apologize if you already addressed it, but i'm trying to read the latest details coming out. do we know the number of americans? any clarity on that? >> no, we don't is the short answer to that. we know that there are 41 people according to militants held hostage, and a good number from britain, japan, and the united states as well. exact figures are very hard to come by at the moment. >> yeah, that's actually one of the more disturbing details, right? we don't have the actual information and the united states doesn't know. matthew chance live in london. one more thing here. i am uncertain whether or not there was clarity on that a small number of bp employees unaccounted for at that gas plant in algeria. the company releasing the stat
far? >> yes, we have and i think, i think they're going to wait to see what obama does, and i've talked with other of my colleagues, what's going on and there's a general consensus that if he steps over that line, that something has to be done. you cannot-- it's not like he's abraham lincoln, we're not at civil war. >> greta: the line i understand for executive orders on gun control, is that the line? >> no, the line is when you cross from administrative executive orders which deal with his office. >> greta: okay. >> and pass legislation during executive order. >> greta: suppose he says he's going to ban assault weapons with executive order. >> you can't do that, that's against the constitution, the constitution is very clear. >> greta: what would be your first step if he did that. >> i think we outlined multiple avenues. it's defending the constitution in any ways we can legally and that process has many different avenues. we're willing to take those to defend the constitution. i think it the right thing to do. >> greta: and we, do you have any idea how many republicans are w
reform? >> i have a big idea. you've heard me talk about obama 2.0. it's all about energy. it's not about drill, baby, drill. it's about natural gas, shale oil -- these are opportunities to transform america. lots of jobs and things we need. we would be less dependent on foreign oil. i think he's going to embrace it. he's already done it, already given the approval that we can export to folks where we have free trade agreements. that's a home run for him. >> rachel, what are you seeing as being a big ticket piece of legislation the president can get passed and have be part of his enduring legacy? >> immigration reform, i think, has the best chance to get some bipartisan support and become a piece of his legacy. >> susan was saying that. >> we've talked about jobs and how important that is. that's a little bit more -- there are lots of external factors that come into play there, unlike the gun debate, immigration is one where there may be some consensus that can be reached. we saw public soul-searching in the republican party right after the election. if they can they can sustain any momen
and i were talking about you think nixon would have some good advice for obama about how to properly do a second term? surely you can't be serious. >> there are such things as negative role models in life and nixon is not a bad one. something we forget about is nixon by this huge majority, one of the biggest in presidential history. yet, no support, you know, two houses of congress, controlled by the democrats so he overreached. he did something called impoundment. he said, democrats can vote all the programs they want. i'm not going to spend the money. even if it's not for watergate, nixon might have been impeached for this. it shows what presidents do when they feel too weak. president obama we heard a couple of weeks ago said i have read the literature on presidents in second terms who overreach and got the message. >> michael, how have second inaugurations historically differed from first inaugurations? >> well, usually it's sort of a somewhat pale echo of the first. you have a first inaugural speech, a big deal, president suggesting the soaring ideas. second one is more limited, mo
. you know, in policies, kind of according to what president obama wanted to do yesterday. >> let's talk about that. the president unveiled plans to curb gun violence yesterday. i want to listen to part of what he said. >> okay. >> congress should restore a ban on military style assault weapons and a ten-round limit for magazines. the type of assault rifle used in aurora, for example, when pared with a high-capacity magazine has one purpose. to pump out as many bullets as quickly as possible. >> it looks unlikely that the president will get ab assault ban by the senate. how do you feel about that? >> you know, just the fact that he is hearing our plea not only from aurora, but from newtown, from tucson, from all of these different places, you know, our pleas are being heard, and that is that we hope that, you know, other -- there are other people out there every day, getting killed, and we're trying to c b curb -- get some kind of policy in place so 34 people aren't affected every day due to gun violence. >> almost two weeks ago, you mentioned what would help you heal if cinemark would
define president obama's second term, and that will be immigration, which dan was just talking about. but we'll take a closer look at it now. all right, now i want to send it back to victor, wloho's in a ni, toasty studio back in atlanta. >> comfy, cozy. you have some nice patriotic music playing there. >> yeah, we have a little band playing. everybody's getting ready for the party here on the mall. >> very nice, randi. >>> if you had to pick, who would you choose to play coach joe paterno in a movie? we'll tell you who is playing the role. >>> and there could be a lance armstrong movie soon. the rights have already been secured. [ nurse ] i'm a hospice nurse. britta olsen is my patient. i spend long hours with her checking her heart rate, administering her medication, and just making her comfortable. one night britta told me about a tradition in denmark, "when a person dies," she said, "someone must open the window so the soul can depart." i smiled and squeezed her hand. "not tonight, britta. not tonight." [ female announcer ] to nurses everywhere, thank you, from johnson & johnson.
and president barack obama's campaigns and tony, from talk radio news service, tony? >> wow, i actually also make tv ads for a living, megyn and obviously, sometimes you do take creative license, but in that particular ad two things bothered me he the most the images of sandy hook, we know what we felt, every american with a heartbeat. and anti-gun groups really are now trying to guilt people into a position, and how much do you restrict and limit the second amendment. and number two the words they omitted and music added to the background. he said my grandfather had a gun to stop a lynching and my father had this rifle to protect our family. and creates an impression he's he a cowboy who misuses or abuses rather, his second amendment right and it's irresponsible and troubling this is the tempo for the debate. if you rightfully own a gun and believe in the second amendment you somehow are complicit or nefarious person and complicit with the sandy hook massacre. >> megyn: mark? >> nobody cares why john barrow's grandfather had the smith & wesson. nobody is trying to take it. and we're looking
voted for refusing to raise the debt ceiling in 2006, talking about president obama. >> let me give you a history. when i came to the congress in 1977, one of the first days i was there, tip o'neill saw me, said, you look like a nice young guy, we need somebody to carry out the trash. he said carrying out the trash is passing the debt limit increase. i spent five years. this is a crazy story, doing little else than going to my colleagues in the domestemocraty to get a vote in the debt ceiling. everybody wanted to vote against it because it could be used against them in the election. everybody knew it had to pass and every time it would pass by one or two votes after i worked on it for weeks and weeks. i said, this is crazy. everybody knows you have to pass it, you already spent the money, like going in a restaurant and saying, i don't want to pay the bill. that's cracrazy. we passed something called the gephardt bill when you pass the budget, you pass the debt ceiling automatically to accommodate those budget figures. yes, you're right. this issue raises all the deficit issues. it shoul
for boost®. >>. >> gregg: president obama's second term is officially underway. president sworn in earlier during a private ceremony at the white house and tomorrow during the public ceremony the president will talk about the deep political divide which makes compromise so very difficult in washington these days and his hope to find some common ground. chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel in washington. what is the possible area where the president and republicans might find common ground? >> reporter: everybody seems to recognize something needs to get done on the national debt. $16 trillion and counting. it won't be easy because both parties are coming at it from different amps, but today a republican rising star called for action. >> we're bankrupted go the country. that is what the american people are looking for. to date, politicians from both parties have been unwilling to take even a tiny step in the right direction. we got to fix the problem. >> reporter: take a deeper look, republicans don't want to raise taxes and democrats don't want to touch entitlements it will be a
. >>gretchen: when does that kick off? >>brian: there is a lot of talk about guns today as president obama plans to announce plans to curb gun violence. a man and woman killed while sitting in a car at a kentucky community college. a student opened fire at a financial aid director, then shooting himself. both of them expected to survive. we're just hours away from hearing what the president plans on doing about guns and what will be an executive order and what will be a proposal for congress. hey, peter. >> today at 11:45 this morning president obama and vice president biden will stand on a stage surrounded by children who wrote them letters full of their concerns about gun violence following last month's mass murder at sandy hook elementary school, and the president is expected to announce that he wants new laws to require universal background checks for anyone buying a gun in any state. he also wants to renew the assault weapons ban as well as a brand-new ban on magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. >> the president has made clear that we all need to do more. and we all need to examin
. six of those candidates lost. they spent more money i think on defeating barack obama because he was going to erase the second amendment from the constitution than they've ever spent to defeat anybody before, yet there he was today at the white house behind the podium talking about reasonable common sense gun laws. >> i thought the nra's advertisement lambasting the president for the security around his children was particularly offensive and a new low even by the leadership of that organization standards today. >> you know, we talked to nra members and we talked to gun deal. >> and we poll them. the truth is the average nra member has not been very happy with the performance that they've been seeing out of the nra's washington lobbyists lately. nra members are people who hunt, who want to defend themselves and who want to be left alone, like much of the country. the nra's washington leadership lives and breathes for an entirely different purpose these days. they're selling guns and they're raising money and they're trying to elect republicans to congress that is the bottom line.
he talk about performance-enhancing drug use or anything like that. they had to continue to do the work they are doing. >> the apology for doping. ed, appreciate the update. turning to washington, d.c. where president obama is looking over the vice president's recommendations on preventing gun violence. the ideas include these things proposing background checks on all gun sales, making certain weapons off limits and keeping guns away from the mentally ill. taking on pro gun groups saying they are using fear to sell more firearms. following those for us, let's begin by digging deeper for the vice president's recommendations. >> the vice president was to have made those recommendations today, they are now reviewing these because he sat down with the president and went over the recommendations and the president is pointing out that later in the week they will be spelling out the details. the universal background checks and the high capacity magazine clips. they still support a ban on assault weapons. some of these things will need congressional approval, but the president noted sh
, that president obama said we're going to have an economist on today on how you get -- you know, we're going to talk to him. he says the one thing that would hurt the economy is in cuts in social security or medicare or medicaid. any type of reform to those things. >> to the true liberal -- >> other than raising taxes up to the level where you fund the promises that we've already made. the entitlements that we've already made and the guarantees we've made, they just want to raise taxes on somebody. i don't know who, to the point where we never actually reform medicare, medicaid or social security. >> the question i want to ask him, is there ever a time that he's making, is it now given where we are in the economy? >> well, the question is, you put in a hundred and you take out 400 in medicare and the government covers 300. >> and it makes no sense. >> well, no, but there are people that think that the government's roll is to provide that 300. and so we should raise taxes to the point where you -- it doesn't matter that you -- >> right. >> it doesn't matter. that is the redistribution. >> tha
. >>> also, president obama ready to present his new gun control agenda today, called the most aggressive and expansive proposal in years. how will congress react to it? this morning we talk with illinois congresswoman tammy duckworth and virginia congressman randy forbes. and less of a priority in public schools across the nation, but what is happening to get kids passionate about music that will change their lives. i'm hanging out with swiss beats this morning. what are you guys doing? >> i love it. >>> when you take the family out to a popular restaurant, do you know how many calories in the popular dishes you and the kids are eating? some calories are eye popping. elizabeth cohen in atlanta this morning. good morning, elizabeth. >> good morning, christine. >> making me hungry and not hungry, at the same time. how many calories are we talking about here? >> we're talking in one meal, more calories than are you supposed to get in an entire day by quite a lot. and one of the things i found kind of surprising. we know fast food has a lot of calories, but these are nice restaurants, where
, that there is so little trust that they feel that obama is bent on really achieving conquest over the republicans by the midterms, trying to isolate tea party republicans and not really coming to too much of a deal. you hear the president talk about, well, he'd be willing to make some modifications to the medicare program. i mean, he certainly is not willing to get into a negotiation over that because he thinks it's going to be one-sided. so can just underlines how far apart they are when it comes to any sort of big deal. and the more people i talk to around the hill, people who know the president, that we might be looking at much smaller deals to try to chip away at some of these issues rather than this concept of a grand bargain. >> chuck, we've gotten the new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll. horrible numbers for congress overall and pretty bad numbers for the republican brand. yet paul ryan yesterday coming out and as a leader sort of talking about we may need to be more accepting of the fact that we only control the house. we don't have the white house or the senate. can republicans do an
